The family was identified as the Capitanos from El Mirage: Anthony, 32, Megan, 32, Lincoln, 4, and Kingsley, 3.
According to the Coconino County Sheriff's Office, a leak in the gas furnace may be the cause of their death.

Deputies received a call just before 12:30 p.m. Monday from a family friend who had not heard from the family for several days.

Fire personnel from Ponderosa FD arrived at 1:43 p.m., put on protective breathing equipment and discovered the family inside.
